Women Leading Government will hold the virtual webinar “Recruitment Practices and Strategies for Advancing Your Career,” on Friday, Nov. 5, from 10 a.m to noon.

The first of two sessions will focus on what public sector recruiters are looking for in candidates, from the town manager position to department heads. They’ll offer advice on basics like writing resumes and cover letters, as well as interviewing techniques. There will also be a broader discussion on identifying positions and organizations where you will thrive.

Speakers will include UMass Collins Center Senior Associate Mary Aicardi, human resources consultant Deborah Radway, and Blackstone Town Administrator Dori Vecchio, formerly the human resources director in Worcester.

The second session will focus on self-promotion and how women can be their own best advocate. A panel of speakers will feature women in the municipal management profession.

The free webinar is open to any staff person in local government, though it is targeted to women. Click here for Zoom registration.
